If You Don’t Tap on the Law of Attraction, You’ll Hate Yourself Later
A few days ago, my sister’s boyfriend finally brought the much awaited The Secret DVD to our place. I’ve heard a lot of rave reviews about this personal development video, which talks about the power of the Laws of Attraction, intentions manifestations entirely through viral marketing and word of mouth over the internet.
And guess what? After watching it, there’s only 1 word to describe the experience – intriguing.
What is the Laws of Attraction?
Well, in layman’s terms, the Laws of Attraction simply means you’ll draw into your life whatever that’s on your mind, by virtue of the images that manifest in your thoughts. Just imagine as if your brain’s behaving like a radar, sending out thought signals on your “wants” and like it or not, your “don’t wants” to the Universe. The Universe will then maneuver to create the opportunities. All you have to do, like what I’ve always mention in my other articles, act.
Before you start letting your imaginations run wild and plan to use the Law of Attraction to strike the lottery and become rich overnight, or lose that 100 pounds of weight to have a toned figure like Jennifer Aniston, here are some interesting truths about the Law of Attraction I’ve learned from the video:
It is obedient
Whatever that you throw out to the Universe, it will definitely fetch for you. You’ll absolutely know the equation of its movement, like a tennis ball. When you bounce it downwards, you know it’ll move upwards and vice versa.
It is unbiased
Yes, it doesn’t differentiate between negative or positive intentions. When you choose to focus on reducing your debt instead of increasing your financial abundance, you will attract more debt into your life. Why? Because you keep thinking about your debts! The Law of Attraction is merely doing its work to deliver what you’re thinking. You think of debts? It gives you debts. In his book Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill also mentioned about this bank official, Joseph Grant who misappropriated and gambled funds from the bank that he worked at. One afternoon, the Bank Examiner came and began to audit the accounts. Out of fear, Grant left the bank and checked into a local hotel. 3 days later, he was found in that hotel lying in bed, wailing and moaning, repeating over and over these words, “My God, this will kill me! I cannot stand the disgrace.” Believe it or not, but he was pronounced dead in a short while. He wanted to be killed. The Law of Attraction delivered death to him. Thanks goodness a positive thought is 100 times more powerful than a negative one. Phew!
It works 24 by 7!
The Law of Attraction doesn’t rest. As long as your brain’s working, it’ll continuously send out signals. Morris Goodman, the Miracle Man is an exemplary showcase. After surviving a plane crash that broke almost every bone in his body – including his skull – and resulted in his becoming paralyzed, he eventually learned to walk again. Now, how did he do it when he was in a state of paralysis? Well, his brain was still working right? Coupled by the positive encouragement provided by the Zig Ziglar’s tapes and inspirational sayings that was played continuously in his ward, Goodman leveraged on the Law of Attraction to overcome physical limitations to walk out of the hospital after many months.
The fact you don’t understand it doesn’t mean you can’t apply it
Some people say “I can’t practice something I don’t understand”. Well, do you need to know how electricity is generated before you can turn on a light bulb? Leave the research to the meta-physicists, scientists, philosophers and learn to utilize the fruits of their labour. In my opinion, that’s the best reward you can ever give them.
There is a time delay between thoughts and manifestation
Aren’t you glad that there’s a response time between sending out your thoughts and getting it materialized? Imagine this, you want to relish your dream of becoming an international marathon runner and you’ve been sending this message to the Universe. If there is no time delay on effecting the manifestation, you’ll probably be finding yourself pitting against top runners from all over the world in an international tournament in no time. But are you ready for it? That’s the beauty of the Law of Attraction, the delay allows you to gear up your skills, train up your muscles and build up your mental tenacity. When the time is right, it’ll match you up with the right contacts and send you to a competition. One can also shorten this time lag by learning to visualize living your dreams with strong feelings.
Why Must You Learn to Tap On the Law of Attraction Positively?
Whether you like it or not, the Law of Attraction is a working rule, just like the Law of Gravity, the Law of Inertia, Boyle’s Law etc. But a lot of people aren’t convinced of its existence simply because they’ve never really seen it at work. They choose to attribute any good or negative results of the Law of Attraction in their life to luck or a higher divine self. Little did they know that it’s they themselves that could have caused the results to differ — their interpretation of their own subjective reality. No one explains this better than Steve Pavlina, so I’ll leave him to do the talking
Since we can’t change the fact of that the Law of Attraction exists, why not make the best of it? Remember, by controlling your thoughts, you can control your outcomes. Set big goals for yourself and learn to tap on the Law of Attraction positively to accelerate its achievement. Life can be absolutely phenomenal!
One of the many inspirational stories that I really loved in The Secret was relating to entrepreneur, John Assaraf’s vision board. When he first started out in his business, he created a vision board which was a collage of pictures of the things events that he wanted to attract. Everyday in his office, he would lookup to the board and start visualizing as if he had already acquired them. He made 3 shifts across a span of 5 years and the vision board was kept in a box. One day, after shifting to his new house, his son was sitting and making a din kicking on the box that contained his vision board.
“Sweetheart, will you please stop and I’m doing some work here.”
“What’s in the boxes, Daddy?”
“Honey, those are my vision boards”
“What’s a vision board?”
“Well, it’s where I put all my goals up, like cut them out and put all my goals up like something I want to achieve in my life”
When he pulled out his vision board from the sealed boxes to show his son, he had a shock of his life. One of the pictures showed a house that was exactly the house he had shifted into. Not a house like it, but the same house that he was living. He had bought his dream house.
I was overwhelmed when I heard the story. Not because it’s a true example of the existence of the Law of Attraction but because of the impact it had on people’s lives if used positively. It’s truly amazing.
